Thesis: Pneumatic Stabillized Platform Airport (Floating Airport)
I'm kind of wondering if this is really effective. And another thing, would that be much costly to the government funds?

Angelo, I would imagine that such a project would be very, very expensive.

You could have the Airport terminal buildings floating offshore and the runways on dry land perhaps?

I say the above because think about the massive weight and thrust required to for the take-off and landing of modern commercial jet planes. a floating runway would be wobbling about all over the place under the impacts from the planes.

Not all governments can afford it. But then, this type of technology is not for everyone. I really think you ought to pursue this.
